With election day just about a week away, Waynesboro residents are showing their support for items on a referendum ballot by displaying signs throughout the city.

Expanding the Waynesboro library has gotten support from many people in the city. The signs have popped up on many front lawns and some residents say it's an attempt to drum up more support.

Nancy Conrad says, "You go by and you see the signs and you start thinking about these different referendum items and to me, the library is very important."

City Councilwoman Lorie Smith says while some may have been unsure about voters’ response to the issues, she has gotten nothing but positive feedback. She says she's excited to see if residents vote to pass all five questions on the ballot.

"I'm really anxious to see that the turnout is what I hope it will be. I think that citizens are very much interested in these issues," says Smith. "It's about forming Waynesboro and setting a direction for Waynesboro."

Conrad agrees that people do care about the issues. She says, along with the storm water upgrades and a new possible west end fire station, smaller projects, like the library expansion, appeal to residents because that's what makes up the small town.

"I think it’s important because it's our money and I think we should have a say in what things should be done,” says Conrad.
